Ever wanted to know exactly what a normal broadcast day was like back in the old days of radio? Well, what if I told you that you can experience that quite easily? Nope, you don't need a time machine, you just need an electronic device that can play mp3 files. Here is an amazing real-life honest-to-goodness broadcast day from September 21, 1939. This is one of the coolest things that exist in this world..... So..... Enjoy! :)

Edit: I was directed by a patron of Old Time Radio Lovers Facebook group to this much better sound version of this wonderful broadcast.

This is an amazing treasure indeed. I've still got it on my iPhone from a few months ago, have never completed listening to it yet—actually I forgot about having it, so I'm glad you posted this.

Good :) even if you just listen to the sundial part it's really something beautiful.

Please look at the original post of this thread. There is an edit that will be of interest!

Around 35 minutes or so on the second track of the newer link I posted, Arthur Godfrey mentions a doll called Sunny Jim that you could send for to a cereal company. Well, this is what he's talking about!

This morning I am up earlier than I normally am, so I've decided to skip ahead to the time it is now and listen to this broadcast. Sigh. It doesn't get much better than this. ☺️🤣

I listened to some parts of this today that I hadn't heard before - The Major Bowes Amateur Show, The Parker Family, Joe E. Brown, and also The Goldbergs. Now I'll never know how that Goldbergs plot turned out... :cry:

Actually, I don't think I've gotten past Sundial. I love the music so much that I always just start from the beginning and then before I know it, two hours have past!

Yes, there's still a lot I haven't listened to. I need to go back and listen to the sundial part again—I remember enjoying it, but have forgotten what's on it.
